Excellent food

We stayed at the Cook and Barker because of the restaurant and weren't disappointed. Both evening meal and breakfast were excellent and the service was very good. Being picky it would have been nice to have a local cask ale or two but regardless we had a great stay and will definitely return.

Perfect location for visiting Alnwick

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The position was very convenient for visiting Alnwick
Cons: The interior decoration
Location: Good. Near castles, National Trust properties and the coast.
The original pub was very nice but the entrance from the car park was terrible, badly decorated and creating a bad first impression. We found the dining room dismal and somber, full of clutter and generally a uninspiring atmosphere.

Lovely place

Great location with a warm and friendly bar and restaurant. Dinner was excellent however breakfast was a little lacking in quantity albeit the quality was good. Bedrooms are clean and tidy.Overall a lovely place to stay.

Very good quality.

The reason for staying here was lack of rooms at the Premier Inn Ashington where I had stayed before and the standard of the room was easily comparable. The food and service however were far far superior. My only criticism is the size of the wash basin in the bathroom which was more suited to a small cloakroom than a bathroom.

Good for touring the locality.

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: Secure car park and good location for touring.
The bedroom accommodation is in a modern block behind the old pub style frontage and overlooks a substantial rear car park ... the car is therefore secure. The accommodation is good as is the breakfast. A very rural location close to the A1 and well situated for touring this beautiful area.

Good food and lovely people.

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: The friendly, caring and efficient staff and the excellent food.
Cons: The purchase of some good quality dusters!
Location: Northumberland is just wonderful. If you can find nothing to do in Northumberland, you are probably dead!
We spent three nights at The Cook and Barker on a sudden whim. We had a lovely time despite slight reservations about the dusting! Room was perfectly good, the members of staff were all really friendly and helpful. My wife has quite serious dementia but the members of staff coped wonderfully even when she ended up behind the bar! The food was very good and I had the best scrambled egg ever! A real test!
